Client story: Roger

12 Oct, 2021

Happy Foot Health Week everyone!

This week we’d like to share the story of Roger, one of our podiatry clients, who was first attended to by our Podiatrist Cherie for a lower-limb check-up last year.

Roger has an acquired brain injury that causes neurological symptoms such as weakness and numbness on the left side of his body. This means he has a highly unstable gait, and therefore many trips and falls. By closely liaising with a pedorthist (medical grade bootmaker), Cherie was able to organise some footwear modifications for Roger to use.

He’s always had a terrific outlook on life and now even more so with his new shoes. We’ll leave you all with something Roger told us at his last appointment:

“You know what’s good about having a numb foot? At least it’s not painful!” We’re sure there’s a lesson in there somewhere for all of us.
